“ZESCO Limited has began importing electricity to supplement the national power supply, following the reduced generation due to poor hydrology,” Company Spokesperson Matongo Maumbi has said in a statement issued to RCV News in Lusaka today.

Mr. Maumbi says the imported electricity will constitute approximately 20% of the total available power for at least 12 months.

He however said ZESCO will have reduced control over the stability and scheduling of the said imported power source.

Mr. Maumbi said ZESCO will strive to maintain existing load shedding schedules, but that there is a possibility of unforeseen disruptions due to the imported power source.

“The Corporation is actively working to address the limitations in domestic power generation and will continue to update customers on any developments,” said Mr. Maumbi.
